Pley have officially announced a partnership with Tilting Point to distribute its farming simulation game Homesteads: Dream Farm cross platform on the web.
Pley’s “native web” browser platform aims to expand the game’s reach to a new audience of web gamers with Tilting Point and game developer Enixan porting the game to Pley's platform. Pley claim that their toolchain enables easy porting of Unity-based mobile games within weeks.
Pley hosts games and delivers them directly to online players using WebGL to bring "identical performance and quality" to the online game as was originally enjoyed in the original mobile version. There are no downloads or installs required, and players can link their mobile account to the web version with the Pley Connect feature.
Homesteads: Dream Farm has racked up over one million downloads and 4.3-star ratings on both Google Play and the Apple App Store. Launching Homesteads on Pley's web distribution platform will now give fans of the Wild West town sim a second, larger screen on which to enjoy the game.
